Week of January 5, 2015: Happy New Year!
 Important Announcements:
Welcome back! We hope all of our Dragons had a wonderful holiday break!
Lower School Author Visit Author Jennifer Hollands has rescheduled her visit with 2nd-5th classes for Tuesday, January 13th. If you purchased copies of Jennifer Holland's books for her to sign, please have your child bring them to Mrs. Wise by January 12th.  Include a slip of paper securely inside the front cover of the book(s) with your child’s first and last name,  grade and teacher’s name.

Calling All Bookworms! The St M Book Fair will be held January 27-29. Click here for more information.
The "Don’t Just Sit There, Get Up and Do Something" January Fitness Calendar will be coming home with all Lower School students.  This is a great opportunity to add a little more activity to your daily schedule during these cold January days.  The calendar is not a competition, but more of an individual challenge.  There is one activity assigned to each day of the month.  Students should check the appropriate box when they have completed the activity.  Family members are welcome to join in our fitness challenge!!  If you have any questions, please contact Katherine Martin . Click here for an electronic copy of the calendar.

Yoga Coming to the Middle School!  We are pleased to announce that Yoga classes will be offered after-school in January. The whole Middle School is welcome—girls, boys, and faculty!  Sessions will start on January 14th and meet in the music room from 3:15 to 4:15 p.m. Mrs. Courain (previously a St. Michael’s teacher) will be teaching the class. No cost, no signup deadline, just drop in!  Questions? Contact Katherine Martin.    
Middle School LAX:
Middle School lacrosse will be offered for both boys and girls this spring. The schedule and sign up information will be shared shortly.
